CNU’s University Innovative Collaboration for Education of SEMIconductor (JUICE-SEMI) opens and begins training semiconductor convergence talent for mobility.

On September 19, CNU held an opening ceremony at the Holiday Inn Gwangju Hotel for the project group (director Professor Hong Sung-hoon) selected through a public contest by the Ministry of Education. This project receives significant support, including up to 40 billion KRW from the Korean government and local government funding from Gwangju Metropolitan City. 
Accordingly, CNU will establish a core education system that leads the expansion of semiconductor talent training so that the semiconductor industry, which is the core of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, can lead the global market. CNU will provide a curriculum to enhance the capabilities of the students to cultivate experts specialized in semiconductors for next-generation mobility.

Additionally, the project includes the construction of semiconductor-specific laboratories, practical education tailored to students' levels, scholarships, support for academic conferences, entrepreneurship, as well as a robust student support program, including participation in international exhibitions and overseas internships with leading research organizations.

With these initiatives, CNU has established a foundation for Gwangju Metropolitan City to become the center of the semiconductor industry in the Honam region. CNU has achieved its current semiconductor talent training structure by previously confirming a net increase of 100 students in its semiconductor program and the establishment of the semiconductor joint research center along with the Student-R&D Infrastructure-Education Program.
